Distributed Intelligence System

A distributed intelligence system is essentially a swarm mind. Like any other particle swarm, as each element of a flock of separate units moves, it affects those directly adjacent to it. However unlike a standard particle swarm, the distributed intelligence is aware of its surroundings and able to think and react.

No one element of the swarm houses the 'brain'. Rather each element contains a tiny piece of the whole, and they work together through networking protocols like neurons do, to form a larger mind. This means that if any part of the swarm is lost, the overall power of the intelligence directing it is diminished but never destroyed. As more and more units are added to the swarm the opposite occurs, and the intelligence created, directly scales in capability.

Augmenting Medical Records: OpenMRS
OpenMRS, or The Open Medical Record System, is a free, open-source attempt at creating a distributed electronic patient records system. It is web based, written in Java, and is under active development.



New approaches to artificial intelligence spring from the idea that intelligence emerges as much from cells, bodies, and societies as it does from evolution, development, and learning. Traditionally, artificial intelligence has been concerned with reproducing the abilities of human brains; newer approaches take inspiration from a wider range of biological structures that that are capable of autonomous self-organisation.

Mapping Intelligence to the Brain
Intelligence. We understand the concept, and the meaning of this word, but where in the brain, precisely, is intelligence actually located? Until recently, we did not really, have a clue. Now, using perhaps the most common sense approach possible, from neuroscientists at the California Institute of Technology have mapped the cognitive zones of the human brain.



Artificial General Intelligence or AGI is the holy grail of AI research. Instead of expert systems, and image recognition, it refers to common-sense know-how ? general intelligence most humans have when in unfamiliar situations. In other words, the ability of an AI to think and reason as a sentient being, even when confronted by unfamiliar data.





On Intelligence is something of a detractor?s book of AI. In it, author Jeff Hawkins juxtaposes computers and brains to examine what he perceives as the possible futures for artificial intelligences, and makes the claim that all AI experts have got it very, very wrong.
